      Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and margarine. Pour into a 9-inch pie plate and press the crumb mixture into the bottom and sides of the plate to form an even crust. Bake for 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside to cool.

      In a large saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the milk, cornstarch, ..." cup of sugar, salt, egg, and egg white. Stir occasionally. When the mixture begins to thicken, stir constantly to avoid lumps. Turn off the heat when the mixture comes to a boil and has reached a pudding consistency.

      Add the vanilla extract and squash puree. Pour half of the mixture into a medium bowl. Make the peanut butter layer by adding the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar and peanut butter to one-half of the mixture and stirring to incorporate. Add the cocoa powder to the other half of the milk mixture to make the chocolate layer.
